If you want to be within walking distance of the Mammoth Mountain Main Lodge, this is the place. In summer the proximity to the gondola means you can hike and mountain bike to your heart's delight. The accommodations, which vary in size, include more than 30 room types, from standard hotel rooms to condo units. The inn, ski lodge, and other summit facilities are likely to be razed and rebuilt within a decade, bringing more of a 21st-century ski resort feel to what's been
a quaint 1950s-born resort. Meanwhile, the inn has done a respectable job with continual refurbishing.
